Short Course - Advanced Epidemiology, University of Melbourne

Mon. 24 Sep, 2018 7:00 pm - Fri. 28 Sep, 2018 3:00 am

UniMelbThis 3+1 days short course led by Prof Tony Blakely (Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics) and Prof John Lynch (The University of Adelaide) will provide a systematic overview of epidemiological concepts and methods, building up from sources of error (confounding, information bias, selection bias) to bias analysis methods, then a range of contemporary methods. The course is premised on a counterfactual and potential outcomes approach to epidemiology. This course is designed for participants with an intermediate-level of knowledge of epidemiology study design and analytical methods, systematic error and biostatistics.

Common attendees of this course include advanced MPH and PhD students, early career researchers, and senior investigators who want an efficient “catch up” on some of the new thinking and methods being used in higher quality research publications.

Venue: The University of Melbourne, Graduate House, 220 Leicester Street, Carlton.

RCGHA Data Linkage Workshop - Hunter Medical Research Institute

Fri. 28 Sep, 2018 7:00 pm - Sat. 29 Sep, 2018 3:00 am

ALSWHUsing existing administrative data provides more bang for your buck when it comes to leveraging study data and combining prospectively collected survey data with administrative health databases opens up another dimension to health research. The Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health (ALSWH, www.alswh.org.au) is a national longitudinal health study involving more than 57,000 women, having collected over 20 years of data on the health and wellbeing of Australian women. ALSWH includes four cohorts of women (born 1989-95, 1973-78, 1946-51 and 1921-26), allowing for within and between generational comparisons, as well as providing linked data to several national and state based administrative health data resources.

Participants will learn about the available linked administrative datasets (MBS, PBS, aged care, hospital, cancer, perinatal), with advice on dealing with the specific data characteristics and tips for combining the ALSWH survey data with the linked data. Examples will be provided to give participants context and application for how the linked data can be utilised.

WHEN - Friday 28 September 2018
WHERE - Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI) Building, John Hunter Hospital Campus, New Lambton Heights (Newcastle)

COSTS
- Full-time student $250
- Early bird registration $300 (pay by 10th Sept)
- Regular registration $350 (Pay on 11 Sept or later)
